The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq has commended the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice Dr Abubakar Malami SAN, CON for his contributions towards the growth of the Humanitarian Ministry. 

Umar Farouq made the commendation  in her goodwill message at the launch of Malamis’ autobiography, titled “Traversing the Thorny Terrain of Nigeria’s Justice Sector ; My Travails and Triumphs”, held on Thursday at the NAF Conference Centre Abuja. 

In a statement signed by her Senior Assistant on Media,Nneka Ikem Anibeze,Farouq described the role of the Minister of Justice  as a difficult terrain which he has steered with diligence and unequalled sacrifice.

“As the chief law officer of the Federation, the guardian of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the representative of the Federal Government in all legal proceedings, the role of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice is no doubt one of the most important and difficult portfolios in the Public Service.

“I have known Dr Malami as an astute and conscionable gentleman right from our days as members of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC). These attributes endeared him to his colleagues and anyone who worked with him. His appointment as Attorney-General of the Federation by President Muhammadu Buhari whom he worked for in CPC therefore came as no surprise to me and those who knew him.

“Mr Malami’s support to the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development at any given instance will always be remembered and his place in the growth of the Ministry will always be secured”.

Umar Farouq commended the launch of Dr Malami’s autobiography, stating that the book will give an insight into the difficulties in  administering Justice in  the country.
